EdSource Today: California forgoes second NCLB waiver request

California has decided not to try again for a waiver from some key provisions of No Child Left Behind, at least not for the next school year.  Instead, state education officials told the U.S. Department of Education that California would instead focus its efforts next year on implementing the Common Core State Standards, federal and state officials said Monday.

Federal education officials also said that they will continue to consider the waiver application from a group of nine of the state’s largest school districts known as the California Office to Reform Education, or CORE.
